Tiger Shroff in a new promo video for the third episode of Arbaaz Khan's talk show, Pinch, addressed the trolling that he has had to endure about his looks. Tiger, the son of actor Jackie Shroff, made his debut with Kriti Sanon in Heropanti. He has since established himself as one of Hindi cinema's most bankable action stars.

In the one-minute promo video, shared ahead of the episode's release, Arbaaz Khan hurled a few mean comments at Tiger Shroff, who took them on and offered context and explanations.

Tiger admitted that he'd received a lot of hate surrounding his looks early in his career. He said in Hindi, "Before the release also, I used to be trolled a lot for my looks. People used to say, 'is he a hero or a heroine? He doesn't look like Jackie dada's son at all.' It was a deliberate move to play to my strengths."

One troll said, "Aapke paas sab kuch hai, bas daadi nahi hai (You have everything, except a beard)," to which Tiger pointed at his bearded face, and said, "Yeh kya hai bhai (What's this, then)'?"

"If you're being trolled or bullied, it's only because you've made an impact. Whatever I am today, it's because of the audiences... As long I'm number one in your heart, that's what matters to me," he said. He was also asked if he is a virgin, to which replied, "Like Salman bhai, I am a virgin." Tiger was making a reference to the now-infamous comment Salman made in an appearance on Koffee with Karan.
